Adding H5P Interactive Content through the eClass Editor
Last modified on 05 July 2023 02:41 PM
(H5P) activities are interactive learning objects based on a set of open-source templates that instructors can add into their courses (the name is an abbreviation for HTML5 Package). Any pre-existing H5P activities created and/or hosted on h5p.org or h5p.com may be embedded into courses to provide interactivity in eClass. This can be accomplished by either linking the URL or by uploading the file anywhere where the standard editor is available (labels, pages, content section headers, etc.)
These activities can also be pulled from the course Content bank, either by linking or copying. Note: H5P activities added through the eClass editor cannot send grades to the eClass gradebook; if this is required, instructors can use the H5P activity type.
There are three ways to add H5P content to your course.
From within any content editor showing the button
1. Copy the HP5 URL from a website.
1. Download an H5P file to your local computer (from h5p.org or h5p.com).
1. Access the editor as above and click the button.
Note: The H5P content type libraries are updated regularly but newer activities created on h5p.org or .com may have issues when added by instructors. Please contact eClass support if you have issues with an incompatible H5P format.
